Hudson Opera House’s Movable Feast 2010

Executive Director Gary Schiro was everywhere at once, yet still managed to elude our camera, keeping things moving at a brisk pace at the Hudson Opera House’s Movable Feast fundraising gala on Saturday, April 17.  Following cocktails at the Opera House, guests moved on to twenty-four dinner parties, most within walking distance of HOH.  Good thing too, because, after dinner, they were expected to return for dessert, coffee, and a raffle drawing.  Funds raised from the Movable Feast this year will support more than 1025 cultural programs for children and adults, many of them free. 

Former Jeffrey, NY visual director turned former Hudson gallery owner and now a painter John Findysz, a dinner host, with a guest, the actor Parker Posey
